  1. The classification of species is not considered a group because each species is an individual organism and not a collective group of organisms. While species may share characteristics with other species and belong to a larger taxonomic group, they are still distinct and separate types of organisms. Additionally, the classification of species is not a level above any other taxonomic level, but rather a fundamental unit of classification within the biological hierarchy.
